Calvin Klein follows their recently banned Eva Mendes commercial for the perfume ‘Secret Obsession’ with a new CK Jeans commercial that has been deemed too hot for TV. In fact, it won’t even be run on late-night cable TV!

The commercial was shot by photographer Steven Meisel with models Danny Schwarz, Vladimir Ivanov, Anna Jagodzinska, Mikus Lasmanis, Anna Selezneva, Natasha Poly, and Edita Vilkeviciute.

An edited version of the commercial will later be run on cable TV in USA, while people in Europe will enjoy the uncensored version, which you can also enjoy in the above video.

This is Calvin Klein’s first jeans TV commercial since their controversial Brooke Shields TV spot (with her being only 15 at the time) back in 1981. Stats for Gratuitous Group Nudevertising Trending: Older & Buzzing
